    Allegro Design Entry HDL SKILL Copy Schematic Page Reply

    Hello everyone.

    I'm a new cadence user and i've been using it for almost a week now.

    I wanted to jump right into writing SKILL script to do a simple task but after reading a the manual and being overloaded with lots of SKILL commands in the user reference guide,  i must admit, i'm a bit discouraged and lost.

    I wanted to write a script to:

    1. copy everything in a schematic page into a new page within the same project.

    2. rename the component designators in the new page

    ex. orig designator: R20_0 will be changed to R20_1 in the new page.

     I would really appreciate if someone can point me to the right direction and a sample script will be helpful.

    Thank you!

     Hi,

    if your purpose is to have same schematic in these pages, look at design reuse with hierarchical schematic. It can do this without writing a line of code...

    Hi jch teyssier,

    Thank you for your reply and suggestion.

    I looked at the design reuse concept before, but this is not the direction (due to business reasons, different PCB vendors and other stuffs) that we want to go into.

    I think a script might not be the best way to accomplish this, but it is more appropriate solution for our needs in the sense that, given any schematic (from any of our Vendor), we can replicate it as many as we want and do the necessary changes.
